The USDA and the First Lady are attempting to increase the awareness of large companies and consumers on what is readily available in the majority of grocery stores and institutions in America. Healthy alternatives that promote nutrition and sustainability are at the forefront of conversation and research. Meals that are readily available to the elderly, children, and the poor have become an increased concern for those involved in developing healthy diets and proper nutrition. Developing trends in nutrition that challenge the declining health of Americans is a part of the solution. Stress has been put on providing vegetables and fruits in place of alarmingly high sugar, protein, and fat snacks.
